A Better Understanding of Sin

(series based on Jay Adams' A theology of Christian Counseling)
(condensed and modified in wording and format)

Old Testament Hebrew word... Amal

(literally) labor, sorrow

sin has made life a burden
sin has brought misery, pain, heartache
the 'problem of evil' is bound up in this idea
trouble, travail, weariness are elements of amal

Biblical Antidote: righteousness simplifies and lightens living
(believers are clothed in the righteousness of Christ)
we take His yoke upon us, learn from Him, find rest for our souls
His yoke is easy, His burden is light
